Share some Scottish heritage in the post! Our set of four printed postcards come with QR codes which will link to the relevant archive video clip when scanned with a smart device. A great alternative birthday card for archive fans! Also available in sets of six.

Archive clips:

  • Up Helly Aa: the procession and burning of the galley at the 1972 viking themed fire festival.
  • Cairding and Spinning: a knitwear class from the late 1960s.
  • Regatta: the 1975 Walls "peerie" sailing regatta.
  • Casting Peats: peat being cut with a traditional tushkar (1970s).

General Postcards

We’re happy to supply a custom set of four (e.g. four of the same design) and you can also mix and match with our festive postcards which link to Christmas clips from the 1960s:

  • Christmas on Papa Stour #1 - decorations and candles.
  • Christmas on Papa Stour #2 - men guizing (in costumes) at New Year.
  • Christmas on Papa Stour #3 - decorating the tree.
  • Christmas on Papa Stour #4 - building a snow man.

Buying merchandise directly supports the archive allowing us to continue our aim to celebrate Shetland's history and culture; preserving it for future generations to enjoy. Thanks for your support!
